Putting Your Donation $ to Work!
OSNF is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization so donated funds all go towards helping the animals and our mission of ending overpopulation as with our "Beat the Heat for Tom & Mom" program which helps fix cats of people who have limited income and Good Samaritans who have taken in strays, rescue animals or ferals. This program is successful because each year, we have found a handful of kind veterinarians around town to donate a majority of their fees plus OSNF pays a subsidy towards the female surgeries, so the surgery price ends up being minimal for the owner of $10 for neuters and $20 for spays. Here are some quotes from a few of those we helped with last year's program:
From the owner "Thank you, thank you to all the wonderful people who have found it in their hearts to donate to OSNF to prevent further births and abandonment scenarios like JoJo's. You are each deeply appreciated…. JoJo was found abandoned at a park last October at 7 weeks old, covered in fleas and malnourished. He’s all better now, and loves his new forever home very much. He will rise up on his back feet and wave his front paws when he sees his us, which we interpret as a HELLO greeting. We are truly blessed to have the BTH program cover JoJo's neuter, because he was beginning to spray, and my husband wanted to find him a home somewhere as an outdoor mouser. We were unable to pay regular neuter prices because we are on a very limited income as my husband's contractor job has been very limited these past 6 months. Thankfully, since the surgery, he has not sprayed and we are able to keep him."
"Hank came to us as a stray/feral cat in Yamhill.. With a little food and lots of love he’s turned out to be the best cat ever! We are so happy with him. The program you offer helped out extremely. I work part time & have a 3yr old son. Money comes tight! But with this $10 offer, i was able to take back pop cans & get my cat fixed!"
We are in need to replenish funds for the 2013 program. Won't you consider making a small tax-deductible donation to help keep our program going?
